Episodic morality tale about the evils of gambling that relies a lot of flashback tales about different tales of gambling and it's consequences in the first half, then dives into a melodramatic tale about a fellow who tries to get revenge on a lout who killed his brother by carrying out a bombastic scheme. Pretty draggy at times, but gets ridiculous at the end, so there's something to look forward to. (BTW, news flash, wrestling is fake)

'Born to Gamble' is a pretty good film. Not really a must-see, but still pretty good
At the heart of the story, it really shows how most parents truly want the best for their children. I'm not a parent yet, but it wasn't hard for me to imagine the pain and heartache that the parents in this movie must have felt when their children went astray and made bad choices in life, as most kids (and young adults) often do.
It's a quite sad at parts, but most good movies are.
